The sixth graders of Girl Scout Troop 85316 in Jamaica Plain recently visited the Mount Pleasant Home to play BINGO, share stories, and enjoy a meal together with residents. Girl Scout Troop 85315 regularly visits the nonprofit residential home to entertain the seniors during their April 26 visit. The girls are Cadette-level members of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts Council.
Question: What is District 6 City Councilor Matt O'Malley's favorite Girl Scout Cookie? Jamaica Plain's Daisy Troop 67633 recently learned the answer to that very important question at the troop's first-ever Girl Scout Cookie Booth at the Curley K-8 School. O'Malley purchased several boxes of cookies, including Tagalongs, Thin Mints and his favorite -- Peanut Butter Patties -- on Dec. 20 from his local cookie entrepreneurs. Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts’ Cookie Program runs through early March and you can locate Girl Scout Cookies by zip code at girlscoutcookies.org.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts (GSEMA) was pleased to recognize Jamaica Plain’s Pi Fong for service to girls and the community at GSEMA’s annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon. Approximately 90 individuals and four service units (a group of volunteers representing a town or several towns) from across eastern Massachusetts, as well the museum volunteer team, were recognized for their service, at the luncheon held on April 28 in Framingham. Fong was awarded the 20-Year Girl Scout Membership Pin for an enduring commitment to the organization, and the President’s Award as Volunteer Support Specialist for several service units. Fong serves as a Troop Leader for local girls and is a Lifetime Member of Girl Scouts. “Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our organization, and it is truly an honor to celebrate them,” said Denise Burgess, Chief Executive Officer, Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts.
